Finding out you are pregnant can be overwhelming. There are a few pregnancy myths to be aware of. Avoid making a rushed decision, especially when it comes to your future. We offer free and confidential options to women facing unexpected pregnancies. (We also have male mentoring for your partner, if needed.) We’re here to provide you with free and confidential support, no matter what. Schedule an appointment today at the link above.
Myth 1: You need to decide right away.
Truth: You may feel extreme urgency to decide on your pregnancy. Pressure can come from your partner, friends, family, or even yourself. However, it is important to know that you can take your time when making your pregnancy decision, especially since it’s one that will impact the rest of your life.
Our team is here to make sure you have all the information you need to make the best decision.
Myth 2: An unplanned pregnancy will ruin your life.
Truth: Life is full of surprises, and it’s up to us to decide what to do with them. Try to picture your life outside of this overwhelming moment and envision what your future can be. Maybe this is a detour, but it doesn’t mean you can’t reach the destination of your dreams. Learn more about all of your options so you can make a fully-informed decision. We’re here to provide the resources and support you need to make your best decision.
Myth 3: Abortion is a quick fix with no long-term effects.
Truth: Abortion is a serious medical procedure that DOES come with significant risks and side effects. Because we don’t financially profit from your decision, we’re the perfect third-party advocate for YOUR best interests. We can discuss all the risks and side effects with you and provide information on all your options. Don’t settle for anything less than complete information about your health and future.
Myth 4: Ultrasound is expensive if you don’t have insurance.
Truth: We offer ultrasounds at no cost to you, and you don’t need insurance.
Regardless of which option you’re considering for your untimely pregnancy, an ultrasound is your next best step. It answers three crucial questions:
- Is the pregnancy located in your uterus? (Make sure it’s not a tubal pregnancy.)
- Is the pregnancy viable? (20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage.)
- How far along is the pregnancy? (Important in determining options.)
The answers to those questions will determine what you can do next.
Whatever you’re going through, our staff is here for you. We offer FREE and confidential services in a non-judgmental environment. Schedule at the link above or call our 24/7 hotline at 513-321-3100.
